Is there a way to print actual size (1:1) a 3D model from SW? should mention the 3D model from a SW pat or assembly, not from 2D dwg
This may be specific to your printer more so than the software, but you should have a control that allows for 1:1 or 100% scale print. I have found they are close but not completely accurate. Draw & dimension an 8" or 10" line on a letter size sheet of paper, and use calipers to calibrate your output.
Change your printer setting to 100%
File, print, page setup
Sorry guys - Just added note on my original mesg - print from a SW part or assembly file, not from 2D dwg
I don't think you're going to find a way to do that.
What is your need with that?
Why not just insert a drawing view at 1:1 scale, and print that?
I myself don't think there is a way to do that - A colleague asked me if it'd be done in SW as he did in another software and I'm just wondering there is a way
From assembly or part I can use Print-->set Page and set 100% scale.
I'm working in sw2016 sp3.0 Italian language. I think it should work in any language. Hoping you should not print the model of your house...;-)
Per my previous comment, the same for all file types.
Just to be clear; you are trying to print a 1:1 view of the model/assm to a paper printer, not printing a scale 3D model?
Like some have suggested you can select Print>Page setup>100%scale and Preview the output from a model /assm.
When I did the scale was close to 1:1(due to my printer) but the page focus was the center of my part/assm... and I could not change it. The view rotated fine, but was stuck showing me the center of the part, even when I placed it on the far right end or way off screen.
